In this case, this will depend on if the external DAC they are using is MQA certified. Since the digital outputs from the Node 2i (i.e. Optical or Coaxial) will bypass the internal DAC, which is MQA certified. Therefore, if the external DAC is MQA certified, then I would advise going into Settings -> Player -> Audio and turn OFF Tone Controls, turn ON Output Level Fixed, and finally turn ON MQA External DAC.
As a result, the Node 2i will simply send the MQA signal out the digital outputs untouched, and the external MQA certified DAC will handle the 'MQA unfolding' from here.
Also, please be advised that Radio Paradise MQA is exclusive to BluOS. This exclusivity means that the MQA unfold is done by the BluOS Player and cannot be passed to an external DAC via the digital outputs.
The Cambridge Audio DACMagic 200M supports MQA.
